We all remember staying up far too late to watch volunteers frantically answer calls in an attempt to raise money for random relevant causes. Or you’re too young for that sort of thing. Either way, this in not that. This is Telethon, the band.
Basing themselves in Milwaukee, WI Telethon is a “band of boy friends who make rock and roll songs for the modern kids and adults” you wouldn’t want to pass up. Their music is fun and inviting, creative and telling. As for live performances? You’d be hard pressed to find a more entertaining bunch to be around.
Just based on their Facebook profile found here, Telethon is woven deeply with a sense of humor. Here’s how they describe themselves:
“We rarely agree on one place to eat our meals, instead each of us chooses places that appeal to us individually. Then, we coordinate with one another to create a “breakfast/lunch/dinner game-plan,” purchase our respective meals from our respective locations of choice, then meet in a previously agreed-upon “munch zone” for meal consumption.”
“If we were combined into one person with all our ages summed, we would be 115 years old.”
These guys also claim they were voted “Most Likely” in year 2005, 2006. Most likely for what? I suppose to know that bit we’ll have to wait for the VH1 special. But if I had to guess, I’d put my money on “most likely to keep playing music”. At least that’s what I’m hoping for.
To wrap your head around who Telethon is and what they do, here’s a video they amusingly entitled, “a goofy song from Telethon’s 2019 album “Hard Pop”.
